Yes, I am a champion and a protector of the joy of learning. I am called to support mom and dad to give their love and time to the children. Their investment is an investment in a life for a life-time.

Hi Amy, Great to connect with you. I am doing my EBC certification with Fielding along with my Masters in OD. Its been wonderful experience getting back to school and I enjoy my learnings tremendously. I am hugely impressed by your initiative and capabilities in helping us connect and grow together via this forum. I am looking forward to build a similarly impressive online community in future and look forward to learn from you and others via this amazing network.

Hi Amy:

My question is a bit off topic, but I wanted to ask your experience of using the platform of Ning to host this incredible community.  

In my line of work, ecotourism, we are starting a community of consultants and thought about using Ning, but I am asking some community managers about their experience because I see a lot of negative comments regarding the service and functionality of the platform.  

I would greatly appreciate your opinion and recommendations. 

Best regards, 

Allan Rhodes

Ah yes, AI!  Of course.  I created a whole course on Change Management using the AI principles.  I'll review the course material for some ideas.  I like the examples you provided, though.  Thanks for the quick feedback.  So glad I joined this community.

All great information, Amy.  I reading through some of the articles now and starting to get some ideas. 

Specific to this particular part of the curriculum, we are looking at the topic of managing a ever evolving culture in a fast paced environment and what role leadership plays in defining and sustaining the culture.

Perhaps my topics below can be turned into questions?  But definitely would like to hear your thoughts. I'll also post on the community board.

Culture Management

  • How do we define our culture and the role that leadership plays
    • What is the leader’s responsibility toward managing culture

  • How to seed good culture – how to live it day-to-day

  • How to manage culture and integrate effectively into the individual/team/ department/company levels 

  • Communication management:  How to create a culture of communication; how to deliver consistent messages; good, honest communication (constructive); communicating and giving feedback in difficult situations

  • How to foster agility - to how to be nimble and open to change; not being closed minded

Thank you Amy.  I am in the process of developing a Leadership Training curriculum and am considering using the World Café process as part of an activity centered around 'defining our culture and the role that leadership plays in the process.'  I am open to any types of questions that would be good to initiate the table conversations.

Hi Amy! Thank you for the welcome, it is much appreciated.  In response to your question, what little I know is that the World Café approach was "renamed" for use in Tribal settings as the "RezCafe".  Rez being the name most of us tribal people refer to as our reservation settings.  I'm not sure beyond that how deeply if any the key concepts were adapted, my assumption is really only in the name.  What I do know is that one of our grantees that we work with within my current employment has used the RezCafe model recently in a high school setting seeking to address suicide prevention. 

We are interested in this approach for that same target issue in assisting our tribal communities in addressing suicide prevention efforts, challenges, solutions and approaches by an attempt to host a summit utilizing the World Café format.  Any suggestions or tips would be helpful.
